Rome Increases Metro and Bus Transportation

The city of Rome's Web site is a good resource for the coming days. It is Italian and I'm working on translating parts of it for you. You can also call the city council hotline at 060606 (operators speak English). Here are some of the highlights:
  • Schools in Rome will be closed Friday.

This is from the What's On in Rome Web site:

"To meet the needs an increasing number of passengers traveling to the Vatican to pay their last respects to the Pope, Rome's public transportation authority (ATAC) has announced additional service for buses and metro. The metro Line A will no longer be closing early and renovation work has been temporarily suspended. The subway will run until its normal closing time of 11:30pm, and possibly beyond if necessary. "

"Additional bus service will also be available, with a special express buses from Termini, Piramide, Cornelia and Piazzale Falminio to St. Peter's from 10am-10pm. The following lines will run more frequently during the hours of 10am-10pm: 23, 32, 46, 81, 280, 492, 870, 881 and 982."
